I have seen V-Ray for 3DS Max and it has the ability to output render passes (reflections, shadows, alpha, AO, etc.) as separate files and/or layers in Photoshop.  Is this possible in the FormZ plug-in?  If so, how do I do it?

 

If not, can we get this functionality added?

Yes, this is a feature of the VFB (Vray Frame Buffer Window).  Here's a better explanation on how it works: https://docs.chaosgr...me Buffer | VFB

Thanks Justin.  I tried it and got the render and alpha channel.  That's it.  Is there a way to get the following as distinct files:  shadows, AO, transparent materials only, opaque materials only and reflections?
